Learn all about vermicomposting, a unique and versatile way to compost year-round and indoors! The Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District is excited to announce a free vermicomposting workshop on Thursday, October 26th from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the West Woods Nature Center (9465 Kinsman Road, Russell, OH 44072). Though nearly half of our household waste is food, vermicomposting uses red wiggler worms to convert food scraps into valuable soil amendment which improves soil drainage, structure, and overall health.
Join us for this informative and fun workshop featuring compost expert Diana Sette, who will demonstrate the essential steps of creating and maintaining a vermicomposting system. Supplies included for the first 30 Geauga County residents who register! Registration is required by Tuesday, October 17th.
For more information or to register contact Gail Prunty at 440-834-1122 or [email protected]. In collaboration with the Geauga County Master Gardeners, this program is part of the 2017 Lake Erie: DON’T WASTE IT! Stormwater, Phase 2, and You education series. Support is provided by the Healthy Soils Initiative through ODA Division of Soil and Water Conservation.
